Q)
I’m taking medication to manage a health condition I have. I think the medication violates the rules set out in the WADA Code, what should I do?

It’s best to check the prohibited substances list first, however if your medication is on the list, you’ll need a note from your doctor stating that the medication is for a genuine medical condition. We’ll then discuss the possibility of a TUE with our sports medicine expert at the WNBF.

Q)
If I have to take a polygraph test what will happen?

A polygraph test is used as an additional method to ensure natural status beyond drug testing. A polygraph test is in lay terms a lie detector test. The test will be carried out by a qualified polygraph examiner who will ask you a series of questions about your status as a natural bodybuilder. A test will usually last anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes

Q)
If I need to get a drug test what will happen?

At a competition if you are asked to submit to a drug test this will usually take place via urinalysis. In this case you must make your whereabouts known to the drug control officer (DCO) until you are ready to provide a sample. The DCO will accompany you to the toilet to ensure there is no tampering with a urine sample, the sample will be deposited into the designated receptacle, prior to being decanted into the specimen tube by yourself. Only you will handle your sample throughout. Thereafter you will complete the accompanying paperwork which goes with your sample.

Q)
This is going to be my first time competing, what happens backstage?

A changing space will be provided for you to get ready for competition. The backstage staff will let you know when it’s time for your class to go on stage. A programme/running order will be available on the day so you can estimate how much time you have to prepare. It’s your responsibility to ensure you are pumped up and glazed prior to going on stage.

Q)
I want to take part in the novice division, and this is my first season competing. It went really well, and I managed to place in the top 3 at the local gym show (unsanctioned), plus a sanctioned show last month. Can I still compete as a novice?

Yes, your status as a novice lasts for the duration of the season. You’ll no longer be able to compete as a novice in your next season though.

Q)
I was thinking about doing the first timer’s class. I competed once before as a Bikini competitor but want to have a go at the figure division this year. Can I do the first timers?

No, first timers divisions are reserved for athletes who have never competed, e.g. stepped on stage.

Q)
I’m a teen competitor, can I compete in the juniors, novice, or men’s open class or the men’s physique division?

Yes, you could compete in any of the aforementioned classes and divisions at a qualifier, so long as you meet the criteria for being a novice. You can only compete in one class though and crossovers are not permitted at a UK finals. In that case you would need to choose to either compete as a bodybuilder or men’s physique competitor if you made it to the finals.

Q)
I’ll be 23 years old and 25 days on the date of the UK finals. Am I permitted to compete as a junior at a regional event and the UK final if I qualify?

No unfortunately, you’ve missed out on your chance to compete as a junior this year, the class is for under 23’s only.

Q)
It’s my Birthday on the day of the competition and I will be 19 years old. Am I permitted to compete as a teen, at a qualifier and the UK finals if I qualify?

Yes, you can compete as a teen.
